Hey, Girls! I am back again with another lipstick review. This is one of the very affordable ones from Maybelline. These were the first ever lipsticks I tried in my life and were a gift, I must say the start to my makeup madness. They are both very elegant colors. So today I am reviewing the Maybelline Crushed Candy and Cherry Crush Color Show Lipstick.

My experience with Maybelline Crushed Candy and Cherry Crush Color Show Lipstick


The packaging is simple yet pretty elegant. It comes in a black packaging along with a black cap. The shade name is written at the bottom of the lipstick. These lipsticks are color coded as Browns, Reds, Oranges, Pinks and Purples at the bottom as well as the middle band. This way it is very easy to recognize the color if you store the lipsticks upside down especially when you own more than one shade from this range.

Directions to use:

Start by prepping your lips using a moisturizer. Then start applying the lipstick from the middle of the lips and move towards the end. You can also apply it using a lip brush. These lipsticks are very creamy and hence do not require lip balm before use for normal lips. Heavily chapped lips need to use a lip balm before using this lipstick.

Shade and Texture:

The shade Crushed Candy is a semi sheer slightly blue toned pink. It is very near to a pinkish nude. The shade Cherry Crush is a pretty semi sheer pink with a red undertone. This is very near to the reddish pink nude. These lipsticks are comfortably creamy but need to be layered to get the actual pigmentation. These lipsticks do not dry the lips. The shade Crushed Candy would suit the cool toned beauties while the shade Cherry Crush suits the warm toned beauties. For the shade Crushed Candy, using a Strawberry Pink lip liner and for the shade Cherry Crush, using a Cherry Red lip liner will give best results making the color of the lipstick show up really well and also by giving the right base for the lipstick given its creamy semi sheer consistency.

Overall Performance 

These would flatter all the skin tones. Both these shades give a subtle beauty face. With no extra makeup except a mascara and these lipsticks paired with the right lip liner gives a nice college or work look. If you want to head to a party, pair these lipsticks with the Maybelline Colossal Turquoise Kajal use the trick with a slight tinge of a pink blush and you will have the perfect party look. If you have pigmented lips, you might have to layer it well to make your lips show up the right color along with pairing it with the right lip liner. As it is not a matte lipstick it does not dry your lips. These cuties work best for college girls or for someone on a budget as they are not very costly and also perfect for the working woman for that hassle free classy look for work.

Staying Power:

The staying power is quite good for this lipstick especially for the consistency and price. It lasts for almost 3 to 3.5 hours without smudging. If you eat or drink something, it will transfer. It does not leave a considerable stain and hence needs touch ups. Using a lip liner not only to line your lips but also fill it in and then putting on the lipstick does not only give a better color, but also helps in making it stay longer?

Would I recommend it?

Oh Ya! I will definitely recommend these lipsticks for their amazing texture and beautiful color pay off and it is totally worth the price.

At least one lipstick from this range is a must lipstick for every lipstick lover.

As it is said that girls cannot stop with one lipstick, go ahead and try the Fuschia Flare, Red Diva and Ruby Twilight shades as well from this range and do comment on this post with your experience.

Stay happy stay beautiful   <3
